Kashmiri Chicken

Kashmir is the Northern Most part of India. It is one of the most beautiful place on earth. One poet said about Kashmir that if there is paradise on earth then it is here in Kashmir. Because of rich culture and history of Kashmir, it has developed its own cuisine and since Kashmir produce the best saffron in the world so saffron is used extensively in Kashmiri Cuisine. Here I am writing one of their chicken dish. I hope you people would like that.

      I am always in search of something new and interesting to bring to the dinner table, and this dish seems to have all of the elements to excite the senses, and establish itself as new and interesting. This will definitely be something I will be whipping up very soon. It looks delicious, and it seems fairly simple to make, which is an added plus.

      This chicken dish sounds wonderful! I did not know that the best saffron came from Kashmir. It is a wonderful flavoring agent. Too bad that it is so expensive! We use it sparingly but love what it does to flavor dishes. Voted UUI and will happily share.
